“At the very least, the optics aren’t favorable. One Eagles staffer said the only coach who probably doesn’t think Schwartz is trying to undercut Pederson is Pederson. Three players, who requested anonymity, said that it’s become well-known in the locker room that Schwartz is waiting to usurp power.
“He walks around the building like he thinks he’s the head coach,” one player said”
This is not the first time as he had that weird issues. With Lions he ha a “handshake spat” with Jim Harbaugh and he was recorded cursing about it on the field. In Buffalo he asked his defensive players to carry him off field after beating the Lions he used to coach 17-14 in week 5 win. (I wonder why he didnt ask for a Gatorade bath? What a huge win, right?)
And now he was forced to answer awkward questions about “usurping power” in Philly.
“I am very comfortable with my relationship with Doug Pederson. And I know he’s comfortable in his relationship with me.” - Schwartz
That response reminded me so much of McAdoo on his relationship with Mara.
“I’m confident and comfortable with the way we communicate and our open lines of communication.’’
Of course, McAdoo was fired days later.
Im not sure what is the state of things in regards to Schwartz in this search but I for one wouldn’t even consider Schwartz. Too many consistent personality issues
